We review the new single from Curse of Lono – Think I’m Alright Now

In the latest of their sweet yet sour tunes, London’s Curse of Lono have dropped new single ‘Think I’m Alright Now– the sophomore release from upcoming album ‘People In Cars’.

Following on from July’s ‘Let Your Love Rain Down On Me’, in this new track singer-songwriter Felix Bechtolsheimer reflects on an incredibly difficult personal period -clouded with loss and grief – against the backdrop of a global pandemic.

“I lost my dad, my uncle and my ex-partner last year, and my band, but I’ve got this record and I almost look at it like a bit of a shrine.” Bechtolsheimer explains.
‘Think I’m Alright Now’ showcases the moments where a few glimmers of hope begin to burn through the dark clouds.

Running at almost 4-and-a-half-minutes, the track blends laid-back percussion, jangly guitars and soft-country rock melodies to create an immersive cinematic soundscape.

Along with warm and mellow harmones – Bechtolshiemer’s echoey commanding vocals tell of attempting to overcome challenges in life.

“I’ve been shaken / But I think I’m alright now”

Amidst the pain and adversity – there’s a real sense of resilience in this track, of dusting yourself off and trying your best.

With poignant lyrics and a moreish bluesy sound – this latest release gives us another taste of what’s to come from Curse of Lono when their third studio album is served up next month.
